We’ve all stumbled across those Instagram accounts and YouTube channels, the ones run by makeup artists demonstrating their craft, giving tutorials, and generally looking better than the rest of us. Some of us have even dared to attempt to follow along with one or two of these educational guides. Good for you! How’d it turn out? Not even remotely close? Don’t fret, the struggle is universal and very real.
Makeup is hard. Theses gurus of cosmetology are called makeup artists for a reason—it’s a legit art form, complete with brushes and face paint. So, you know, don’t be so hard on yourself when you are forced to keep evening out your winged eyeliner on each side until you eyelids are two black holes and all the sudden you’re a panda. Don’t take yourself too seriously, is what I’m trying to say. Instead, follow Morgan’s lead.
She recently uploaded her “bullshit makeup tutorial” to Twitter, a video that resonated so loudly with so many that it was retweeted over 54,000 times and liked over 77,000 times in three days.
“I don’t know how much I’m pumping, I’m just like, going psycho on my face” AH YES, now that is a makeup tutorial I can relate to. Her video was also shared all over Facebook, specifically by a boy band (?) named 5 Quad (?), where the comments were largely an internet ovation to Morgan’s personality.
